Listening to the Border Radio
Excellently produced documentary about radio networking in Nepal that gives great insight into their oppressive government and lack of freedom of speech (and how they are attempting to conquer anti free speech through radio networking). Great musical soundtrack and glimpse into another cultures slice of life!
